Travel Gift Guide

This undated image provided by Morpher Helmet shows the Morpher bike helmet. The helmet collapses to a flat shape when not in use, which makes it easy to store and carry, especially for cyclists who don't want to lug their own helmets when they travel, but who want to use bike share systems in cities where helmets may not be provided.
